Service was lacking completely. Our server never came back for refills, we had to track down another server just to get those. We ordered items and never received them. When asked we were told they will check on them but never followed through. $140 for three people was absurd for the service or the lack there of.

Ive been a long time fan of gyu kaku. Cerritos is my favorite location of them all!

They seem to have different offerings than other locations.

I love to take advantage of the deals... super happy hour on tuesday and Wednesday 2-5pm where they have a special menu thats 50% off select items. I also love their 3 item lunch sets! You can really get full on 10.5 ounces of meat!

Whenever i come here, i get great service, but today was exceptional!

Kelsey was our server and she went above and beyond w her service and great recommendations. Manager was super accommodating also!

Be sure to sign up for their gyu kaku rewards program too!!

We saw an advertising for cinco de mayo misoladas. Omg.... i cant wait to try them!!

I’ve been to Gyu-Kaku in Pasadena and Cerritos. Personally would go to Pasadena instead. The girl in the front (who took us to our table) didn’t really make us feel welcomed. She just seemed like she didn’t want to be there. I mentioned on reservations it was hubbys bday lunch and had to remind the waitress 2times. We also got the lunch special and didnt received our miso soups. Mentioned it to waitress and she offered it AFTER THE FACT. Didn’t offer any substitute. Just said “OH I FORGOT WANT IT NOW?” Literally after we paid.

Awesome venue! First time visiting the place. Our server, Angel, was extremely friendly, and helpful in helping us get around the menu as first-timers. The hostess was great as well, gave us a mini lesson on the Japanese greeting and farewell as you came in and out of the restaurant. The food was a bit pricy, but well worth it. Excellence experience all around! Will definitely be coming back.

We made a reservation for 9PM and we had to wait until 9:50 PM to get seated because they were "backed up". I'm not sure what the purpose of having reservations as an option is, when you can't honor or seat at an appropriate time. Overall, the food is great, service, etc. I'd just rather not have expectations of being seated at a certain time with reservation and have to wait 50 minutes after.

I love this restaurant, for the first time we tried the All you can eat - DO NOT get it if you tend not to finish your food. We learned the hard way. They charged us for food that was unfinished.! And they didn't tell us before hand.

We got overcharged for drinks that were included in the meal but the waiter was so nice we just let it slide. The restaurant was quite loud due to it being completely full. However, the food was extremely good and the service was amazing!

I had the opportunity to try out the restaurant along with my mother a few years when Dine LA was taking place. I fell in love with the food and the service so this time I decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day with my girlfriend there since she hadn’t been there before. We had an amazing time and the service was excellent. I definitely recommend anyone who hasn’t tried Gyu-Kaku to give it a try.

Slow service, it's unbelievable that the restaurant ran out of rice and had to wait 15 mins for a new one to be cooked. An asian restaurant should not be running out of rice in the middle of dinner hour. Kitchen should have been managed more efficiently

It is a bit more expensive than some of the other AYCE kbbq in the area but the food quality is better, the waits are much shorter, and the attentiveness of the staff is sharper.

We all got the All You Can Eat Premium selection, and even though it was the cheapest of the 3 selections it did not disappoint. The meat selection and sides were on point! We even tried all 4 s'mores flavors. Service was great and very attentive. We definitely got our money's worth, and left very full and happy 🙂
